Custom fabricated sapphire windows for use in laser weapon systems and autonomous technologies requiring robust and ultra-clear protective optics have been introduced by Meller Optics, Inc. of Providence, Rhode Island.
Meller Sapphire Windows feature Mohs 9 hardness, flatness to < 1/20th wave, ≤ 3 Å surface roughness, 10-5 scratch-dig finishes, and < 2 arc-sec. parallelism. Manufactured to specifications in sizes from 0.25” to 9.00” O.D. and varying wall thicknesses, they can include stepped edges, elliptical edge shaping, holes, slots, and wedges for mounting purposes.
Second only to diamond in hardness, Meller Sapphire Windows are engineered for demanding applications, making them ideal as front surface optics. Resistant to fast moving sand, salt water, and other particulates, they are well suited for all types of laser weapon systems, high power microwave, and other applications requiring extremely flat and robust optics.
Meller Sapphire Windows are priced according to configuration, size, and quantity. Price quotations are available upon request.
